tv The O Reilly Factor FOX News September 21, 2015 8:00pm-9:01pm PDT
might be a tv star. that is all the time we have this evening. we take attendance and it hurts our feelings when you're not here. we'll see you back here tomorrow night. the o'reilly factor is on. tonight: i absolutely would not put a muslim in charge of this nation. i absolutelily would not agree with that. >> we ask that mr. carson withdraw from the presidential race. >> more insanity. this is how working americans are being hosed how our foreign policy is falling apart. tonight charles krauthammer and i will dial with it. >> some conservative americans angry with pope francis but should they be as the pope prepares to come to america. we have a special report. >> what do you think about trump? >> i like him in a way he that he is causing sleuth chaos.
sloot -- absolute chaos. >> jesse watters talking politics. >> benghazi? >> drink, i don't know. >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor -- the no spin zone from southern california, the factor begins right now. ♪ ♪ hi, i'm bill o'reilly, reporting from los angeles. thanks for watching us tonight. what really matters in the presidential race. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. it is down right sad watching the left leaning media beat up all the republican candidates because they don't embrace the liberal p.c. litmus test. you could be the most brilliant problem solver on the planet. but if you don't support planned parenthood, black lives matter, global warming, you are not worthy.
and now, it's ridiculous muslim stuff that the media is propelling. >> do you believe is consistent with the constitution. >> i would not advocate that we put a muslim in charge of this nation. i you absolutely would not agree with that. >> and we ask mr. ben carson to withdraw from the presidential race because he is unfit to lead. because his views are indo contradiction with the united states constitution. >> oh, give me a break. dr. carson believing that islamic tenets don't line one judeo-christian philosophy on which the country was founded? and he is not allowed to say that? it's his opinion. well with, shear bulletin, unlike many muslim countries, we have free speech in america. and carson's opinion shouldn't disqualify him from anything but individual votes if that be the case.
all of this p.c. fog has shrouded important issues. like the new census report released last week. it says median income for working americans is 6.5% lower than it wases in 2007, seven years ago because 2014 was the census stat. that means only one thing. president obama's economic policies have failed. right? democrats will never admit that but, facts are stubborn things. unlike mr. obama poverty and income inequality have become worse in america. especially in the minority precincts. but the president will never say that. while salaries from working folks are down. but the president will never say that the liberal media largely ignores the facts, instead trumping up dopey stuff about muslims. and then there is foreign policy. almost a year ago i spoke
with former obama secretary of defense leon panetta. >> we govern either by leadership or crisis. and todd we are largely governing by crisis. >> look, when you are say and president obama says and you agree with him here that arming syrian rebels who we don't even know much about is going to deblunt the isis fanatics, guys luke me say that's just bull. that's not going to happen. >> and it didn't happen. again last week, another very telling story down played. it seems that the defense department, despite having $500 million to train anti-assad syrian rebels has failed dismally. >> we have heard reports about the attacks on those individuals when they were reinserted back into syria. can you tell us what the total number of trained fighters >> it's a small number. and the ones that are in the
fight talking four or five. >> four or five men. that's all the obama administration has in the field right now for $500 million. four or five. unbelievable in it sounds like a "saturday night live" skit, you're correct. hogan's heroes could have done a better job. but the national media barely covering the story because it makes the liberal president look bad. august the republican presidential candidates should know they are north going to get a fair shot with the media they had better stop, had better stop answering loaded questions about muslims, physical appearances and who has more pep. this country is devolving quickly. and nothing to do with muslim political candidates, a phony war on women, or global warming. it has everything to do with staggering incompetence. that he was the men now.
now for -- memo. the muslim line of questioning is stupid, right >> >> i think it's a legitimate question and i think the right answer is, depends hot muslim is if we have the american equivalent of anwr is he democrat or of king abdullah of jordan, an american equivalent of that. sure i would support that person or could support that person. it's a dumb question and dumb answer. it should be answered as a dumb question. i agree with you entirely that the liberal media are suppressing all this other stuff. the first recovery in american history where there is a decline in median income the humiliation and catastrophe that is happening in syria. the russians are in there. they now have combat combat with air-to-air capacity. isis has no air force. that is not to fight isis although that's the ostensible reason we are negotiating with the russians. we are being humiliated and
overtaken in syria and the middle east. it's all true and being down played. however, when you blame the media for questions about appearances or about the lack of pep, you are looking in the wrong place. those you, were raised by donald trump the run away frontrunner. is the one who said of carly fiorina, look at that face. that was not an invention of the liberal media. and he is the one who has gone on and on and on in just about every speech about how his supposedly jeb bush is a he very, very low energy guy. he has got this teeny tiny wienie energy while trump has this giant big huge energy. and you you need a psychiatrist to deacon structure that that's the point. >> you are missing ago very, very important point. >> what am i missing? >> okay. it's true trump has raised
the issues of personal appearance and pep but it's also true that the media has seized upon that to make it the campaign all about it. all right? so my advice to the other republican candidates and trump himself is to not answer those questions and to get down to, hey, every single american is getting -- you want energy? this is what i would have said if i was jeb bush. you want energy? here is energy. 6.5% median income. i'm outraged about it not going to happen if i were president. that's my energy. that's what i do. >> so, let me understand. this so you are carlie's principle advisor and they ask about donald trump saying look at that face and insulting her looks, and you are going to whisper in her ear, don't answer that question, talk about the median wage instead of saying all america heard what you said when he tries to pretend. >> no that was ad-lib.
>> persona? >> no, no, no. carly fiorina and anyone else who is insulted, all right. has a certain has a perfect right to come back. but then you pivot off that and a you say a thit pell. shear what is important. here is what i would do. important issues besetting america. they have no interest in it. >> important issues? donald trump has been laying out issues and programs and plans other attacks on other republicans. he has done it with relish and so he manship and skill. he has been dominating the debate and dominating the media he has turned it into anwr. if you want to blame the media for playing on it.
and for getting ratings out of it, okay. let's understand who is the partner in crime here. >> you can point your finger at anybody. that doesn't mean that the republican candidates can't say this is garbage and i'm going to do. this i will take issue with you over the muslim question that carson means is the tenets of islam do not line up with the tenets of judeo-christian philosophy. they don't line up in his opinion therefore, he doesn't believe that a muslim could carry out the vision of the founding fathers. that's his opinion and he is entitled to it without being threatened and called a bigot. >> i'm not threatening him had. i'm not calling him a bigot. if you are asking me to comment my opinion on his opinion here is what i say. unless you fancy yourself islamic scholar which i assume that dr. carson doesn't, you have to concede
that in any religion, christian, jewish, islam or whatever, people bring their own understanding of that again i say there have a lot of muslims in america. i don't know whether it would apply universally, but there is nothing inthreatens sick in the religion that would make a believer and there are all stripes of believers in the u.s. and around the world amicable to the constitution. and if you think that's true, then i think you are making a pronouncement on a religion that you are not an expert on. i'm not even sure you could say that about a christian or about a just. we do not i'm not saying he is not allowed to say it but he is wrong. that's your opinion and we respect that opinion. okay. that's your opinion and we respect it but his opinion is different based upon, i believe, ations, not writing in the koran.
but both opinions should be stated and debated it rhymes. good debate we always enjoy having you on the program. >> that's not a fruitful debate. again, we are ignoring all the other issues and that's why when you get a question like that, you are going to answer it simply, step away and then you talk about income. and then you talk about the russians expanding in the middle east. >> that's right. >> as we do nothing. that's the point. >> okay. thank you, charles. and we have a very sad out of washington to tell you about tonight. it effects all fox viewers directly. mary katharine ham's husband killed on saturday while riding his bicycle in a charity event. was hit by a car. tomorrow, we will talk about jake brewer with juan williams, who knew him. the unspeakable situation is difficult for us to process, for anybody to process. we have posted some information on bill

joining us now from washington, fox news senior political analyst brit hume. why didn't scott walker catch on? >> bill, he has a guy that seemed to have the achievements that republican voters are looking for. they are constantly complaining that their leaders in washington in particular it don't fight. walker had been in these bruising fights out in wisconsin with the labor movement out there and he had won them. but the man we saw on the debate stage in neither debate projected the image of much of a fighter. he said very little. didn't say it with much force he was bland and classic midwestern way. pleasant, bland and people were looking for something else. and this didn't see in scott walker the man that they had heard about and his support dried up and his money dried up and last poll. >> if trump had not been in the race. if trump had not been in the race. would it have been different for walker in your opinion? >> it would have been different for everybody, bill. obviously to some extent for walker. not plane to me. look, there were plenty of other candidates in the race
who were alternatives to trump. he didn't get that marco rubleio has planned managed to stay afloat. it wasn't mission impossible for him. >> hillary clinton is up now a little bit, why? >> look at this poll, it's 404 voters. that's not a huge sample. it's satisfactory, i suppose. marginal of error plus or nine minus five points. it may indeed be true that she has moved back into a more commanding lead over bernie sanders but it may also not be true. this will need to be confirmed by further polling. she is still -- certainly doesn't suggest that she has lost further ground. i would say that. >> why is trump losing steam? >> well, you think what -- what i would be more thinking out of this poll is he is maybe leveling off. again, same margin of error. plus or minus five points.
sosh to think he is down. i would expect not down 8. rubio moved up. jeb bush stayed the same. i think it's kind of still all about trump and whether he has leveled off which, indeed the polling and aftermath of the debate and sort of what you would think after watching him in the debate. didn't have a great night. he may indeed be leveling off now and that could be the prelude to a general slow decline. >> all right. did you hear the debate with krauthammer and me over the carson muslim thing. >> yeah, did i. >> do you think carson putting forth an opinion like that is going to hurt him? >> i think it was a political mistake. i don't know to what extent it will hurt him. the question was so utterly hypothetical and totally irrelevant to the current political cycle here. i mean, there is nobody in the race who is a muslim. there is nobody contemplating getting into
the race who is a are you -- mu. it's irrelevant. what carson should have done would to be say that and change the subject to something else. rather than in this controversy. he is entitled to his opinion. a lot of people will feel the same way. maybe not backing off will endear him to republican voters. it was a controversy best avoided. >> i think republicans have got it wise up and say look a lot of these questions are loaded, all right. and they are designed to make us look bad and to hammer us and, you have got to keep on the the important issues. >> yeah. >> don't walk into them. >> that's right. one footnote, the hill newspaper reports some celebrities now supporting the socialist bernie sanders. will ferrell, dan dedeet voyeur. john c. reilly. mark wrath flow. david crosby among the sanders fans. many of those people have lots of money. they have far less of it if sanders ever wins the presidency.

to sergeant bowe bergdahl. i think the fix is in. i don't think chuck hagel or the pentagon is going to do anything. they want him out and they will very quietly get him out. that's what's going to happen. with us is colonel hunt. new information about some tape recordings bergdahl made. what's the headline, colonel? june 30th, 2009, he deserts his post in afghanistan. july 1st and 2ened standard briefing to a commander of his unit at fort brigade of the division we have tapes of talking on bergdahl's phone saying bergdahl wanted to join them and they talking about bergdahl trying to join them. this information was known from july 2ened on yet we still traded him for five
terrorists had a white house ceremony and now would have taken two years since he has come back to do something which takes 90 days. the government has not yet and doesn't sound like it's going to use these tapes against sergeant bergdahl its expolitic cable. it doesn't make sense. does the numbers make any sense about on bergdahl? >> how did the government gets tapes? >> programs we have been doing it since world war ii in which we listen to the enemy and people that speak pashtun or whatever language they were listening were listening to what thrp told to and also listening to bergdahl's' phone. they heard taliban on bergdahl's phone because he joined them by then and taliban on separate phones talking about him it's a
military program. >> let me stop you. so, it's surveillance. they have two is the of tapes one on bergdahl's own phone. taliban talking. then on another phone, used by the taliban. once again, the tapes say that bergdahl deserted and wanted to join the taliban; is that correct? >> yes. the tapes are available. the government is not using them. and, by the way, there were 30 people in that briefing. >> and you have got to know that dahl pedaling that he wasn't a deserter at that level, correct? >> dahl investigation done by the naval intelligence when this first happened they called him a deserter and then dahl does an investigation. then there is another investigation again since he
has come back. it's taken two years to get to this point which normally takes 90 days and the tapes were not presented in this reernt theater. >> i have always said dahl is not interested other than getting this guy. >> he is not the only one. entire chain of command. >> he is in charge and testified on friday. he stew two star. four stars involved in this. >> stay on it and we will continue our investigation here. plenty more ahead as the factor moves along from los angeles. a bizarre story out of denver where pot is legal. police say a man ate marijuana infused in candy. >> also coming up, some conservatives mad at pope
♪ ♪ the beautiful sound of customers making the most of their united flight. power, wi-fi, and streaming entertainment. that's... seize the journey friendly. ♪ in the impact segment tonight, more trouble for colorado on the pot front. as you may know marijuana is legal in the rockie mountain state. and there have been big problems associated with that apparently a man in denver ate some marijuana infused candy he bought at a
legal pot shop. then he killed his wife. >> >> christine kirk called 911 about 9:30 monday night saying her husband had eaten edible marijuana and was hallucinating and wanted her to shoot him. >> alleged killer 49-year-old richard kirk pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. charged withst degree murder of his wife. katie path listen and from new york kennedy, both fox news analysts. kennedy has her own program on the fox business network. to make the story worse. the couple had three young sons in the home when the guy shot and killed his wife. and you say? >> i say this is horrific. it is horrible that these children are now orphaned because of the actions of
this person. it is a tragedy, but we have to be very careful in tragedy not to rush to judgment because we don't know what else this guy had in the system if he had a history of mental illness. if he he had a history of domestic abuse. i think all of those questions are very important and i'm sure they will be answered as this investigation goes forward. that is, in fact, a tragedy. do we have the evidence to blame the whole thing on pot and is that causation to make it illegal? i don't think we do. >> this is the headline the police investigators put out. what do you say about it, katie? >> well, look, i think that this is a tragedy. i agree with kennedy. i also think that there are tragedies that happen with legal substances all the time there are people who get in cars after they have been drinking and they kill people by the thousands every single year. and i think this goes to show though that the marijuana activists saying that marijuana isn't
harmful, kind of blows a hole? their argue. i think he is going to have hard time winning in court by saying that he was insane at the time. but, also, one more thing i want to point out here, too. the argument to legalize marijuana came on the basis of saying they could regulate it effectively. we are see youing nowg in the experiment of maybe overdosing on this drug and having it too big of a dose in the edible form can result in a very devastating consequence. i think that's the experiment colorado is running right now. >> i am going to give you, kennedy, some stats that involve other people not just the dopey pot heads, okay? traffic, marijuana related deaths up 32% in colorado since its legal. children ingesting marijuana, there were two in 2009, 2014, 16. all right. 3 % increase in the number of marijuana-related hospitalizations since it's
legal. and double the number of traffic deaths voluming marijuana in colorado. double. so, it's not just the pot heads. it's the other people. and this has always been the argument against the legalization of narcotics is public safety. kennedy 30 seconds. katie, 30 seconds, go. >> this is a misrepresentation of a lot of these facts. for example before 2009 they weren't testing for marijuana. of course you are going to see more marijuana in the bloodstream after traffic accidents because they have more effective means for testing it and people are going to report when they overdose because it is legal. and a lot of this is confirmation by us at the hands of those people who put that survey together, which runs in direct opposition to voters in colorado who still overwhelmingly support the marijuana legalization there. >> the stats are the stats. >> the stats are not the stats in this case, bill. i have to take herb with that. >> yes, they. >> no, they have actually.
>> it's a government issued report. there is no fraud in it. katie, last word? >> well, look, i think that we are looking here at the fact that marijuana does have consequences and a the choice comes down to whether as a society, whether coloradoens want to deal with those consequences and have marijuana legal or if he this want to give the resources to go back and retroactively make it legal again. that's the choice on the table here. we now know based on your stats that marijuana is not harmless. >> you are not going to put the genie back in the bong. that's not going to happen. >> people have to know the truth about what is happening. >> kennedy, i have got to go. i don't know about any genies and don't know about bottles. truth is public safety endangered by intoxicating substances of all kinds. we come right back. the pope coming to america. tomorrow, some conservatives not happy with the pontiff. then, watters, the oktoberfest edition. >> i think biden is here right now.
>> really? >> yeah, i saw him slugging back a few beers. >> i need a hug where is that man? >> watters is lying. >> watters is lying. the factor is coming right i am totally blind. and sometimes i struggle to sleep at night, and stay awake during the day. this is called non-24. learn more by calling 844-824-2424. or visit your24info.com.
